Ganesh’s ‘Myna’ is now ‘Shailoo’

Golden Ganesh’s next gets new title, director and female lead. Whew

K Manju’s remake of Kollywood super hit Myna, with Golden Ganesh in the lead, has been revamped following confusions over the title, the cast and the crew. The film was earlier supposed to retain its original title Myna for Kannada too. Solomon, who had directed the Tamil film, was to direct the Kannada version too with Amala Paul reprising her role. However, now the entire plan has gone for a toss, thanks to copyright issues that have cropped up.

Apparently, a Kannada film titled Myna (short form of Mythili Nagaraj), directed by Ravi Srivatsa, went on the floors recently, and this has made it mandatory for Manju to change his title. He has now finalised on Shailoo. Manju has also replaced Solomon with S Narayan and Amala with Sanusha Santhosh. Maybe these changes will prove lucky for the film. Who knows?
